Pastor and author Jared Wellman examines, "How can I be so despondent over a person I've never met? And why is anyone ever upset over the unexpected passing of a celebrity they don't personally know?"
Texas pastor Jared Wellman sees the IMB drawdown of 600-800 missionaries and staff as more than a budget problem. “The IMB isn’t a budget item or an offering,” he writes. “It’s people with passions and hopes and dreams and convictions and families and lives. But most importantly it’s saved people reaching lost people with the Gospel.”
